THIS IS NOT AUTOIT QUESTION AT ALL.

when I open Taskman.exe process appears to be listed as: 'ADversion.txt:CabalMain.exe'

can anyone tell me please what does it means if the process is running like this?

well, the process you are looking at (the window there) isn't taskman, it's taskmgr; and if you name something like that, it will look as such while running; search for that name on your computer to find the actual file

Don't think so: this is Windows' way of showing that CabalMain.exe is attached to ADversion.txt as an Additional Data Stream.

Since ADS are not normally visible in explorer, you won't find it very easily. You can however isolate them,

on the cmd line do a 'copy ADversion.txt:CabalMain.exe CabalMain.exe' in the directory where ADversion.txt is to copy it into your visible file system.

That said, seeing that CabalMain.exe is an online game, you will probably want to remove it; you can use merijn's

ADS spy to do that.

Running your computer through a couple of virus/malware/rootkit checks is probably a good idea ...

take care,

whim
